change


Description:

public void change (owned Attribute attr)

Insert the given attribute into the AttrList.

It will replace any attributes of the same type on that segment and be merged with any adjoining attributes that are identical.

This function is slower than insert for creating an attribute list in order (potentially much slower for large lists). However, insert is not suitable for continually changing a set of attributes since it never removes or combines existing attributes.

Parameters:

this

a AttrList

attr

the attribute to insert. Ownership of this value is assumed by the list.
